batted cleanup. thank you for that. [laughter] >> would have to say this for congressman paul ryan. unfortunately being wrong doesn't earn you any points when it comes to helping senior citizens across. the budget for 2014 this is bad for seniors as his budget last year and the year before that and the year before that. there's a reason you are. all rights budget is march madness when it comes to seniors. thankfully the american people have made it clear they reject the approach and the house republicans brazen attempt to balance the budget on the backs of seniors is unacceptable. this year's budget is in a path to prosperity for america's seniors. it's a path to poverty. the nine budget includes ill conceived unclear shift more medicare costs to seniors. once again, ryan medicare voucher schemes are short on detail spirit we don't know how much missing or so pay out of pocket, but here's so we do know. if it was his budget, ryan proposes to replace guarantee of health coverage at the voucher program beneficiaries can use to purchase private health insurance or join some version of
what paul ryan proposed a few days ago. so that is a big difference. it made it easier for him to balance the budget by having lower levels of defense spending. would've been almost impossible to balance the budget over 10 years. >> what about what was put forth by senate democrats and house members? the increases that he wants or about $600 over 10 years. democrats want an increase and i'm sure republicans way for democrats to figure out where they are. democrats are talking about getting rid of tax breaks and taxes. limiting the values of certain tax breaks. that is what they are talking about right now. they want to get rid of the tax breaks and get rid of them. >> the paul ryan plan a party takes into account these rates approved by congress. >> yes, that is right. about $600 billion in new taxes over 10 years. it helps to balance the budget. >> any surprises from the senate budget committee markup yesterday? >> well, a little surprised that she was able to hold the line. ten republicans and democrats on the committee. but she could not afford to use a single one. she had b
program and as paul ryan has with major new tax cuts and then imagine how you are going to sort of put that together in the end, that is a fundamental different. they are protective and therefore the permanent campaign hardball but they are not prepared to put at risk the full faith and credit of the united states. they are not prepared really to shut the government down. they just won't do that because they believe the government plays an important role. and i think conservatives, real conservatives want the government that they have and not a bit more or that they need, but they are not -- they are not wild and crazy about just dumping on that. and i think we have -- it is almost a radical perspective, not a conservative perspective against one that is more protective of the government, and i think the difference is real. >> i just want to throw out a theory that you can keep in the back of your head and i want to go to the hash tag even worse caucus where we have some comments. one theory is all bill clinton's the five false and i would explain that by saying that starting in the 19
coverage on c-span. earlier today, house budget committee paul ryan spoke. here's what he said. [cheers and applause] ♪ >> hey, good morning. good morning, everybody. good to see you. just ♪ hey, folks. hello. thanks, everybody. [cheers and applause] >> appreciated. hey michelle, how are you doing? how about it for janesville, wisconsin. i appreciate it. that's great. we all need a break from the mess in washington and i just got to say, it is nice to be in her room full of conservatives for a change. [cheers and applause] thank you. it's time she takes up to catch up with friends and a plan for the future. so i'm grateful for the chance to speak with you and thanks for this opportunity. this has been a really big week. we got white smoke from the vatican and a budget from the senate. [cheers and applause] the senate call their budget a foundation for growth, restoring the promise of american opportunity. well, i feel like saluting already. but when you read it, you find the vatican has not the only place blowing smoke this week. [laughter] you see the democrats call their budget a
of what their aspirations are. he had lunch with paul ryan yesterday. this is a change you think we should encourage, whether it's motivated for reasons we don't understand or not, ronald reagan would have done that. poor country to be successful, we have to put aside the truth that exists unrecognized because the other side doesn't have the used, it does not mean they are not motivated. we have to get to a different place or we can find broader consensus based on principles. that's how we will win. ronald reagan is someone who is a role model not because of his great success. he's also a role model for the political system they have today. imagine a country with energy resources we have, with the immigrant heritage that has been our blessing. with the ability to solve problems intractable today, this country will take off. this was the inspiration for the rest of the world. we will regain her footing and rebuild the face of this earth and requires leadership that they can show each and every day and that's why i'm honored to be here. thank you very much. [applause] [applause] >> thank you
: yes, hello, paul ryan just did a budget and he wants to cancel the affordable care act. also, my government doesn't want it. i'm guessing the congress and give the money for the affordable care act. >> okay, paul ryan's budget is being unveiled today. what do you say about this? >> well, his budget does assume the repeal of the affordable care act. i think it is sort of a pipe dream, given the political makeup of the country right now. i think it is aspirational. they would like that to be the case. republicans still think the forgo care act could collapse under its own weight. premiums will go up, people won't sign up, things like that. they think that there is no other choice and it could be a reality someday. >> at the kaiser family foundation's website they have a map on the exchanges and the decisions made by each of the states. paul ryan, a republican is unveiling his budget to the federal exchange program. >> exactly. although governor walker, very interestingly, he unveiled a plan. the other mechanism is medicaid expansion. i don't want to expand medicaid through the affo
budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protect
he said. he said we've got billions of dollars in paul ryan's budget over here. i said no, no. i'm talking about this budget. you claim you're not scoring as an increase in spending $1.2 trillion? that you allowed to occur by eliminating the reduction in spending required in current law as part of the law of the united states today and will not be changed? this is baloney. surely congress will never change this. surely we won't go back on the promise we made in 2011 when we raised the debt ceiling. but anyway, this is what the associated press said about it, because the democrats want to restore $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts over the same period, cuts imposed by washington's failure to reach a broader budget pact. they couldn't reach an agreement so these automatic cuts occurred. murray's blueprint increases spending. you take the $1.2 trillion there and you have taxes increases over here, but the increases in spending are greater than the taxes, and they conclude that it increases spending overall. increases spending overall. while the chairman and, i guess, the budge
think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform
afterwards to see what each side has in terms of what their aspirations are. he had lunch with paul ryan yesterday. this is a change that i think we should encourage whether it's motivated for all sorts of reasons we don't understand or not, ronald reagan would have done that and george bush would have done that and for our country to be successful we have to put aside some of this vitriol that exists and began to recognize that just because the other side doesn't have our view it does not mean they are not motivated for love of country. .. and it requires the kind of that ronald reagan showed each and every day and that is why am honored to be here. [applause] >> thank you. thank you, guys. thank you very much. [applause] >> five minutes. you want to take a couple of questions? >> thank you so much, governor. we have got six minutes of time to take just a couple of questions. if you have a question, raise your hand. just wait until we put a microphone in a. tell us who you are. start right over here. >> peggy. governor bush, thank you so much for your wonderful talk. i was curious, with
. the republican-led house, by contrast, senator paul ryan and his team has a plan that they'll vote on today that has passed -- will balance the budget. and they've passed a budget every year. and our colleagues in the sena senate, while refusing to pass a budget, have delighted in complaining about the leadership and the responsible action of the house by blaming everything they can think of and more on unkind paul ryan, who wants to push old fox off the cliff. and that's not true. he's got good plans. he's got growth plans. but what i -- i would say to you is, this congress, this senate has done nothing while being critical of everyone else. last year, there -- we've had several budgets come up and i voted for several of them. my democratic colleagues have voted for not one. they have voted against the ryan budget. they voted against the president's budget. they voted against the toomey budget. they voted against the rand paul budget. voted against them all. but yet they don't seem to be in the least bit hesitant just to attack everybody else. so i think we have a moral duty to balance the
and political ally paul ryan, tirelessly barn stormed the country in an effort to recruit and promote candidates, push the party message and earn votes with ticket-topper mitt romney. then came last november. remys did hold on to the u.s. house of representatives and majority of gubernatorial seats among other win, yet given the fiery and sometimes ugly blame game, mr. priebus might have been wished for the days he was recognized as a rising star all while taking the republican party by storm. he's been working on campaigns since he was 16 and wound through the wisconsin republican party ranks and up to the rnc. he is proud to be a lifelong green pay packers fan. -- green bay packers fan. we're told he played a mean game of softball during his time working on his law degree at the university of miami. a time to reflect and look forward happens in any party that loses, but it doesn't lessen the sting when you're the recipient. mr. priebus has been working on a way to rally the faithful and plot a new strategy for the midterm election in 2014 and presidential contest in 2016. one of the silver lin
. we've got paul ryan and a slew of smart, young, and energetic governors ready to take america into the future. [applause] and, the other guys? they got hillary and joe biden. [laughter] so don't tell me, folks, don't tell me, we are the party of compassion. we are the party of immigrants. we are the party of hard-work being taxpayers. we are the party of mobility, opportunity, growth, life, liberty, optimism, and inthey vision. [applause] -- innovation. and look, it is time we started acting like it. and once we do we'll have our comeback. [applause] now i know that some on the right have argued in recent months that the republican party is stuck on austerity. that all we do is talk about cuts. that we don't talk enough about the middle class. well like them i believe that those who stand to benefit most from the restraint of government are the poor and the middle class. but i also know that the only people who set policy are those who win elections. we're not going to do it by dropping a policy paper in everybody's mailbox. there is plenty of openness to new ideas, i assure y
unworkable. >> host: paul ryan writes in today's "wall street journal" opinion section about his budget that is going to win there later this morning, including his idea that the assumption of the affordable care act is repealed and his idea for medicare and medicaid. we will be covering the news conference here on c-span at 10:30 a.m. eastern time. so tune in then. saint augustine florida, but warning. go ahead, question or comment. >> caller: okay, i don't understand how anybody can rationalize asking the government to do anything more than it's doing. they can't pay for what it's supposed to be doing now. it is saying it has to tax us more to get more revenue by adding all these people to the role, of course it is going to cost more money. i like many of the republicans feel the 100% will become 90, will become 80 and the states will be hung out to dry. >> host: cbo says aca is a deficit reducer, confusing that those facts as usual. >> guest: that's the point they like to hammer home that it's reject it to actually reduce deficit and that is again by putting downward pressure on prog
, madam chair. the president hasn't even proposed this. the house budget chairman, paul ryan has been able to create a budget blueprint. i presume that the majority has stated it will soon give us a blueprint. it is quite remarkable that the president has yet to submit a budget even though the law requires that by february 4. the facts are that during the past four years, the federal debt has increased in the debt will increase by another $9 trillion over the next 10 years. protein levels where economists agree that it will cause of slower economic growth we never get a definition for fairness and balance. sadly there is no economic growth will only come through a bigger and more intrusive government. the problem is that raising taxes only creates problems in the case of small business, for 70% where new jobs are created. the higher taxes are robbing the unemployed. the government it supports does not create economic growth or self-sustaining jobs. press reports indicate that the budget resolution will be presented by the budget chair will increase taxes by $1 billion. and it will come fro
house budget committee chair paul ryan's budget plan comes up this week? >> i'm expecting to hear a very spirited debate in both the senate and the house. you will have republicans and democrats on very different sides of what should be done. >> paul ryan's budget, how does it compare to the democrats proposal? >> it cut spending a lot more and it reduces the deficit a lot more. brian's budget would reduce the deficit almost $6 trillion in 10 years. the marie budget would reduce it a little under $2 trillion in 10 years. >> what other groups are planning to offer their own budget plan and what are those plans likely to focus on? >> again the house, the top democrat on the house budget committee will introduce a democratic alternative and actually it will be similar to patty murray's democratic budget in the senate. both of those plans will have tax increases as well as some spending cuts and neither of them would balance the budget in 10 years. they are less aggressive as far as deficit reduction and in the house the congressional black caucus and professional caucus will be introducing
